I think this is my fav. station.

Hi there, when upgrading to 1.0.8, on my Nexus 7 (2013), if the contacts permission is disabled, the app crashes with an IllegalArgumentException. Can you reproduce? In addition, when network is unavailable, I receive a Java.io.IOException : NetworkError. Thanks for creating such a great app, regardless, and hope these are fixed by the next update!

Here's a photo that's not of me, but may explain some things about me to those who are curious.

This is what a computer geek looked like in the late 1950s and early 1960s.  It's a picture of my father, William J. Raymond, when he was about 30.  He was one of the first programmers in the days of the electromechanical dinosaurs - quietly proud to the end of his life of having been the first person to implement a matrix-inversion algorithm.

Dad grew up poor in the depression-flattened coal country of central Pennsylvania. He fought his way out of there on sheer brains and guts, earning a basketball scholarship and a math degree, then enlisted in the Air Force and got involved with the very earliest computers while doing high-altitude meteorology.  Another thing he was proud of was being the only member of the cadre the Air Force sent to be trained under Norbert Weiner at MIT who was not a commissioned officer.

After his enlistment he went to work for what became Sperry Univac and later Unisys (it was Remington Rand then).  For a while he was J. Presper Eckert's contract monitor. Until the late 1960s he still got his hands into code, troubleshooting problems on Univac mainframes.  After a long career, he retired at Univac's world director of technical support services.

Along the way he wooed and married a beautiful woman above his station, then raised five kids during a globetrotting career that took us all to Venezuela, Great Britain, and Italy. He played chess at almost grandmaster level, restored old sportscars for fun, and knew something about nearly everything.

This is where half my DNA and upbringing came from.  He died in 2005, but he lived to see me shake up the technology he helped pioneer and blaze some new trails of my own.  That made him proud, too, and I think it was the best and last gift I could give him.
